So what's new in this one? I haven't found any release notes, do I have to download it in order to see them?

I think it fixes a bug which would allow someone to access all of your cache directory, but a full changelog would be nice.

Suppose we'll have to wait for their website to catch up ...

Netscape has been taking it's own time about this bugfix! It's huge. <http://www.whitehats.com/demo> but I've seen several sites using this, not all advertising what it is.

I neglected to mention in my last message that 4.07 does indeed fix the recent privacy bug. Exploit now yields a javascript error:

---- JavaScript Error: <http://www.whitehats.com/cgi-bin/cache.cgi?cow>, line 1:

access disallowed from scripts at <http://www.whitehats.com/cgi-bin/cache.cgi?cow> to documents at another domain. ----

It still doesn't fix the gif transparency problems with Dynamic Fonts (discoloration on various video cards).....
